Form & Verdict

0-13 under rules but only 0-3 over fences and he was a 10l runner-up over C&D three weeks ago on soft ground he probably didn't enjoy (best previous efforts on good or good to soft); should be in the thick of it.

Beat his only two rivals very easily here last April (soft) and seen only three times since; travelled well for a long way in Born At Midnight's race here last month but raced a bit too freely and, after looking dangerous before two out, weakened late on to be 10l off the winner; has a record of 1-17 but the ability is there to threaten off this mark.

Made it fourth-time lucky over fences when making all at Plumpton (3m1f, soft) in April; however, beat just two rivals that day and was only sixth on last month's return.

Form & Verdict

Winning pointer who can't get her head in front under rules (0-13) but she's been banging on the door over fences and has just been unlucky; a rising mark adds to the frustration but she shouldn't be far away; all ground seems fine.

0-18 under rules and not always a fluent jumper but her second to a progressive rival at Plumpton (3m1f, soft) last month was a good effort, and she also ran well at Huntingdon (2m7f, good) three weeks ago.

Won two of his last three races last season but he wasn't on the money at Hereford in November after a break and now returns from another; hard to weigh up right now but still has low mileage and he's not the worst handicapped of these.

Interesting seasonal debutant having won two of his last three races, latest off just 2lb lower at Warwick (3m, good) in April; game sort who still has low mileage over fences and may improve further.

Form & Verdict

The rain didn't help him when a last-to-finish second over 2m3f here four weeks ago; can look a tricky ride but no knocking his results this season and the main concern is whether he's as good over 3m+ as he is at 2m4f.

Did well over fences last season, winning three times; below form here last month, after a layoff, but might have needed that outing and usual cheekpieces are refitted for this bid to exploit his lower hurdle mark.

3-10 over fences, the latest win gained at Fontwell (2m3f, good) in April; that form has been very well advertised by the close second since, but this one hasn't been seen since he fell at Worcester in May.
